That's what I was thinking. I'm thinking of buying the iPaq itself in
germany, and the memory chips here. So, I'd just be paying them for a
service, not for an item.
If you ask someone in the US to do work for you, do you have to pay VAT ?
I was under the impression that VAT & Duty were just on *things* not
services, if the services were not carried out here.
